Synopses & Reviews
Professor Nedoseka presents an essential guide to the key principles and problems involved in the analysis of welded structures. In the introductory chapter, he discusses design issues, key equations and calculations, and the effects of varied heat sources in relation to the temperature field in welding. Subsequent chapters explore welding stresses and strains and fracture mechanics, the load carrying capacity of welded structures, diagnostics and prediction of the residual life of welded structures and acoustic emission techniques for the analysis of welded structures. The conclusion supplies supplementary information on numerical techniques and other tests for welded structures.
"Experience has shown that the problem of guaranteeing the safe operation of structures can be divided into certain key requirements. We are pleased to say that this manual completely meets these requirements."
-Profressor B.E. Paton, President of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (from the Foreward)
